Hosier Lane is very famous for its street art. Hundred of visitors walk down the street each day, stopping to snap photos and pose in front of the urban graffitis.
Behind this group of Japanese were sitting three homeless people. They were talking and smoking and two of them had their faces covered in small sores and scarring.
Later, in a small isolated street on the corner of little Bourke, I saw a woman with the same sores and scars on her face. She was on her knees, a crazy look on her face, rolling her eyes, her arms spreading up above her head and she was crying -result of a massive hallucination maybe, and her whole body was wrenched, as if invisible giant hands had twisted it, crooked it, bruised it.
I have to say, I was quite shocked and didn't know what to do.
I saw other meth addicts in the streets of St Kilda, and not only around st Kilda jonction. It's weird going to a liquor shop to buy alcohol and feel like you're buying a heavy drug, while ice and crystal meth looks easy to get here and devastating. Has Melbourne a problem with meth?
